Things Are Getting Ugly Over at Team Quest


Team Quest has seen better days. The Portland, Oregon chapter of the fight team ended 2010 with a string of disasters. After blowing his title fight with Anderson Silva in the closing moments of their fight at UFC 117, Chael Sonnen pissed hot and—after telling the CSAC and all of planet Earth about his insufficient gonads—was suspended for 6 months. He followed that little number up by pleading guilty to a money laundering scheme which prompted the UFC to freeze his contract. For his part, Lindland closed out the year with a quick visit to the spirit world for the second time in his last three fights. Now more bad news is on the horizon as “The Law” could be facing a legal battle with Team Quest teammate Dan Henderson.

The dispute centers on ownership and rights to the Team Quest name. Henderson was at one point the sole owner of the fight club, but later sold a minority share in the company to Lindland. Henderson operates his branch of the franchise out of Temecula, California, with four other locations calling California and Oregon home. Money is no doubt at the heart of this battle. While Hendo is known to be soft-spoken, his counterparts in Oregon are no strangers to speaking their mind. It will be interesting to see how this plays out in and out of the courtroom. It’s hard to imagine Lindland charming a jury, and you’d have to give the advantage to Hendo thanks to his strong political allies…

Little off topic, any news on Karma's fight?

They should let them fight it out. Hendo would put him to coma and hold all the shares again. Easy :)

You know your gym is in trouble when Ed Herman thinks he has outgrown the place.

@ sevvi - are ya sure that's oxycontin they got you on, because with the way you're sharing on here like it is a support group I'm a little worried they might have slipped you some estrogen.
J/K man. Good luck with the nose and the wife.

emceelokey, Lindland owns a used car dealership, add that to the fact that Dana White wouldnt touch the silly bastard with a 10ft pole (sign him to the UFC) and its clear we arent talking about a quility person. Its also worth mentioning Rampage Jackson says Matt has the worst smelling breath he has ever smelled in his life. Says he has a asshole in his mouth haha

@darciesdaddy hehe. No the misses cant be blamed for my nose. Not yet anyway. My brother broke it on atleast two occasions though.
emceelokey- February 19, 2011 at 7:42 pm
Linland has to be a total dick. Like dick hall of fame level type of dick.
darciesdaddy- February 19, 2011 at 7:12 pm
Sevvi, I hope it wasn't the wife that's broken your nose so many times.
sevvi- February 19, 2011 at 5:04 pm
Btw doesnt "the law" look a bit like whats his face. Ben stillers so called friend in there is something about mary. woogie, or something like that.

Hendo. One of the few fighters that left ufc by own choice. If he hadnt underestimated zhields im pretty sure he would have won that one. I really hope and believe he can win both the lhw and mw belt in strikeforce. Sorry for the rant and that i went offtopic. Im kinda high on oxycontin and cant sleep. Plus my wife to be is making me sleep by myself since she is mad at me. So i got nothing better to do then to read mma and rant about, yea well. Nothing :-). And for the record im not a junkie, i just had surgery on my nose and im in quite some pain. Since i have broken it a couple of times and it grew shut. Made it kinda hard to breathe. Not that you guys care about me and my life. But like i said im high so.

UFC 17? Damn. Seems like only a few months ago...

I thought it would be an article about Chandella visiting the gym.
Austin3210- February 19, 2011 at 2:15 pm
Well I guess we know why The Law wouldn't accept Hendo's challenge of fighting for ownership of Team Quest.
